Is everything in your Argosy aluminum?

I'm in the process of renovating a 77/78 Argosy 6.7 Metre.
I've removed all of the cabinets and furniture, except the ceiling cabinets.
Everything is aluminum.
All the cabinets - aluminum.
Furniture frames - aluminum.
Subfloor - aluminum.
Walls - aluminum...

Is this unusual?

To the best of my knowledge all 3 years of the Minuets and all 3 models had aluminum cabinetry. As for the aluminum floor, Most 6.0's had them. Some 6.7's and few if any 7.3's.

Judging a person does not define who they are, it defines who YOU are.

The Minuets were to be lightweight and the aluminum furniture was a way to keep weight down. The dry weight on the 6m Minuet (about 20 feet long) is very comparable to the dry weight of the 1966 Caravel (17 feet long) so I'd say it did the job.
